More proof that I live in the wrong time zone. I lost on the Patriots, can I double up on VDH? What does the dog say?

Poor Edsforth, he hasn't a chance.

I hope this means that the justification for pre-emption as a form of national security risk management is sufficiently clear that we can afford to debate whether it is when the objective is only to promote a free society.

If so, it would seem that when BOTH objectives are in hand, preemption would be an obligation, not a choice.

So, OJ, are you "live-blogging" it?

It worked at the OK Corral.

I tried at the Daniel Pipes thing, but I type one-fingered and couldn't keep up.

Arg. Maybe we can persuade you for the Reader's Digest version after the fact? My 90 WPM typing doesn't get me very far across the three time zones between here and there.
